    The Katz Ehrenthal Collection is a collection of more than 900 objects depicting Jews and antisemitic and anti-Jewish propaganda from the medieval to the modern era, in Europe, Russia, and the United States. The collection was amassed by Peter Ehrenthal, a Romanian Holocaust survivor, to document the pervasive history of anti-Jewish hatred in Western art, politics and popular culture. It includes crude folk art as well as pieces created by Europe's finest craftsmen, prints and periodical illustrations, posters, paintings, decorative art, and toys and everyday household items decorated with depictions of stereotypical Jewish figures.

    Physical Details

    Physical Description
    Double sided illustration removed from a periodical. On one side there is a black ink drawing on paper of Jewish people arranged in small groups inside a tavern, many depicted with stereotypically thick eyebrows and large noses. On the left, a man smoking a pipe and a man with mutton chops stand near a woman, her arm wrapped protectively around an elderly man with a cane. He sits with his back to another man, who is seated in right profile with a child leaning against him. He looks up at a man standing opposite him in a top hat between a man in a long coat and a seated woman holding a child. On the far right, 2 men face the barman behind the counter. There are several loosely sketched figures in the background. The publication information is printed at the top and title is printed below. On the back, 3 partial columns of German text reviewing regional art and entertainment activities are printed in Fraktur font, with the publication information at the top.
